As President of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), the Duke of Kent was in Ireland yesterday where he made his first visits to the stations in Clare and Tipperary and a return visit to the Kerry station.

The Duke followed in the footsteps of his parents when he became President of the RNLI in 1969, and he has since been to almost all of the RNLI lifeboat stations.

Welcomed by the Kilrush station in County Clare by Lifeboat Operations Manager Pauline Dunleavy, the Duke was surrounded by tight security with a garda boat patrolling off the shoreline. The event at the station, also attended by the Kilkee and Doolin units of the Irish Coast Guard, gave the Duke the opportunity to tour the station and be treated to music and dancing.
